True Value Partnership Institute (TVPi) welcomes its newest cohort: The Business of Law Cohort. This group will bring together law firm C-suite professionals to discuss trends and best practices in delivering value both internally to the law firm and externally to the client.
As with the other TVPi cohorts, the Business of Law Cohort will gather virtually over the next several months to discuss critical business continuation topics. With the changing socioeconomic situation, there will be a focus on the business of law in the post-COVID-19 environment as well as more normal best practices around value achievement.
Topics that may be discussed include but are not limited to:
The cohort is designed to develop the participants into true business of law experts as we cross-pollinate our individual specialty experience across our multiple disciplines into collective group knowledge – thus becoming Super Value Producers for our respective law firms. Ultimately, we will create a piece of industry-leading thought leadership that all participants can use to showcase their top-of-line thinking in a time of business crisis.
Led by a unique collection of industry veterans with specialties ranging from data science and practice management to pricing and marketing, the institute will also engage leading industry experts who have taught at Harvard, George Washington University, London School of Economics and Cambridge University to add depth to the conversation.
Participation in the cohort is by invitation only and has limited seat capacity to ensure there is deep dialogue and learning. There is no cost to join this dynamic, industry-leading discussion.
Please express your interest to join by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, April 3. Accepted participants will be announced shortly after that date. The first meeting is scheduled for noon Eastern on Tuesday, April 14, and the cohort will then meet virtually once a month for one hour.
